Believing these signals to be from extra-terrestrial, intelligent life, he reports his findings to his superiors. Now he has been fired, due to a highly skeptical boss.

Still thoroughly believing these to be true alien signals, Zane teams up with a colleague and the two continue to investigate the signals on their own.
